Copenhagen’s vibrant arts scene and laid-back cafe culture attract visitors from around the world, but away from the country’s capital, beautiful countryside, museums, castles, and more await. See below for our top picks of places to visit on day trips from Copenhagen.
 
Malmo, Sweden — 27 miles (44 km) from Copenhagen
The Swedish city of Malmo lies just a short ferry or train journey across the Baltic Sea from Copenhagen, offering travelers the chance to tick off two countries in one trip. It’s worth the trip for the coastal views alone, and other highlights include galleries and museums such as Malmo Konsthall and Moderna Museet Malmo, and top attractions such as the 14th-century St. Peter’s Church (Sankt Petri Church). Take a tour, led by a guide, for an inside look at Copenhagen’s sister town.

North Zealand, Denmark — 31 miles (50 km) from Copenhagen
Zealand is a countryside region north of Copenhagen with a colorful history of battle and occupation. Today, the serene landscapes are dominated by imposing palaces and medieval fortresses, attracting visitors looking to experience a relaxed pace of life outside the city. Top sites include the UNESCO–listed Kronborg Castle (Kronborg Slot) in Elsinore, baroque Fredensborg Palace, and the 17th-century National History Museum (Frederiksborg Slot), built by King Christian IV.
